or alternatively look at this which incorporates the steps dies has pointed out :D

The following is a simple how-to to get azureus working in FC6, i'm not a linux or Fedora expert, i have been using linux for little over a month, but the following worked for me, should be alright for everyone else.

Follow the correct link to the version of the program you want to you, i386 for a 32-bit processor and x86-64 for a 64-bit processor

For i386
Azureus_2.5.0.2_linux.tar.bz2
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/azureus/Azureus_2.5.0.2_linux.tar.bz2?modtime=1168743559&big_mirror=0

For x86_64
Azureus_2.5.0.2_linux-x86_64.tar.bz2
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/azureus/Azureus_2.5.0.2_linux-x86_64.tar.bz2?modtime=1168743606&big_mirror=0

When the download has completed, move it to the your home folder, the default location for a download with mozilla firefox is the user's Desktop space. This is under:


/home/your_username/Desktop

Then move the file to your home folder.
Open a console and


cd -




tar -vxf azureus_2.5.0.2_linux.tar.bz2


This will extract the archive into your home folder. A new folder called azureus will be created in you home directory.

Change into su mode



su -


Then move the folder into your /opt/ directory



mv azureus /opt/


When azureus is first run it will ask you to set it up.It will ask you to forward the ports that you have decided to use, for the purpose of this guide, please visit www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers and decide which port numbers area best to use in your case, ISP's do monitor which port's get heavily used, and in some case's throttle the traffic so if you use a high port number which is listed as unassinged at iana and everybody distributes there ports randomly, bittorrent will stay fast.

After following their comprehensive guide at http://www.portforward.com/ and your sure that you've correctly forwarded the ports in your router but your still mysteriouslly natted then read on.
All you have to do is tell the linux firewall that you want your port number both TCP and UDP open. This is achieved through.

sudo system-config-securitylevel

click add other ports and add TCP and UDP

Next go to and download Sun's implementation of Java. Fedora Core provides an open source implementation of Java. However many users, myself included, prefer Sun Java for their purposes.

Linux Platform - Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
Click download on Java SE Runtime Environment 6, click on accept user agreement,please make sure you download the *.bin of the file. It weighs 18.4MB
Open a console. Type:



su -


Hit enter. Type your root password. Hit enter.

Type:



mv *.bin /opt


Hit enter.
Type:



cd /opt


Hit enter.
Type:



chmod +x *-linux-i586.bin


Hit enter.
Type:



./*.bin


Hit enter. Hold the enter key down until the yes/no line appears to allow you to agree to the license agreement. Type "yes" and hit enter. Wait for the installation to complete.

Type:



rm *.bin


Hit enter. Type "y" and hit enter.



vim /opt/azureus/azureus




#!/bin/bash

######## CONFIGURATION OPTIONS ########
JAVA_PROGRAM_DIR="" # use full path to java bin dir, ex. "/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/bin/"
#PROGRAM_DIR="/home/username/apps/azureus" # use full path to Azureus bin dir
#######################################


Change the JAVA_PROGRAM_DIR="" to point to the java folder in the /opt/ directory

i.e. "/opt/jre1.6.0/bin/"

Type:



/usr/sbin/alternatives --config java


Change from the gcj implementation of java to the new sun java and it should all be fine and dandy.
